Boots is a double-amputee cat who hasn’t gotten used to her prosthetic legs. But she won’t let her disability handicap her. Making a disadvantage work for her, Boots goes down the stairs "gymnast” style: on her front paws. Watch and see!

Everyone has something they’d like to overcome, and in that regard I find Boots inspiring – there’s always a way to conquer a goal if you set your mind to it. Does Boots inspire you? Have you turned a disadvantage into an advantage? Tell us in the comments!

I agree that that the new artificial legs should match his fur - blue isn't a good color at all. But that is one adaptable kitty! Hurray for Boots.

What a beautiful person to see the love and potential in this cat and do whatever she could to help ease the animals' way of life. It was AWSOME to watch the cat climb the steps!!!

Either get some cat fur print fabric, or some faux fur matertial or find a capable artist to paint the prosthetics to look like matching fur. The cat will surely like it and should aid his (or her) rehab!
